I'm experimenting with some designs. Tell me how you like the latest one. Wish we could talk to him too, but we can pray in case he can intercede for us!

But in the long run, won't they be ever-so-glad we made them take Latin? All the experts day it will pay off eventually. So pleased you enjoyed this one - stay tuned for more!

Just a different canned format Typepad offers the lowly $5/month customers! Photos aren't too big or unfocused - good for the vision impaired like I'm getting to be. Not sure if they really lack sharpness or I need to upgrade my monitor. Glad you enjoyed and hope you like the others too. We would LOVE to visit! February? We'd love to see you too!

Thanks ladies! May I ask what sort of computer screen you use to view blogs? These pics do not look that great on my little Windows laptop screen, but much better on my husband's Apple Macbook. Just considering what might be on my Christmas list!

There's a story behind that wooden fence. A very weedy one! The good thing is that my dh now works from home. And it's also a great feeling to be on the road to a firm financial base. Also good that this opportunity is temporary and will not be a permanent mode of working overtime like many families I know. But it will be a bit stressful and we'll need to lend our support to him for this time and let him know how much we appreciate his providing for us. The hope is in the end we can live closer to church and music lessons! And have more wall space to hang photos like the banjo and dancer ; )

Me too - and I intend to print it all out using one of those blog-to-book sites but never do. So glad we can glean from one another. Real life mentors are few and far between but these online mentors are a treasure. So grateful they take the time to share.

Me too, Sheri, me too! I do have a video for you, so touching, so powerful. I don't want to re-open that can of worms on FB so I may just email you with it. Blessings on your beautiful family and keep up the joyful work of mothering!

Too funny! Sarcasm is truly lost on children. Sometimes I even have to remind myself of the author's facetiousness. We miss seeing you too! Were hoping you would do the Friday baseball. I have a CD to return to you but may hold it hostage until we arrange a coffee date!
